Great Day!

I could look at the mountains all day. I love my view from work!

I got up this morning feeling like I didn't want to go into work for a half day, but knowing I needed to. After 9:00 am I called the autoshop and my car was DONE! When Tim took his lunch break we went over to pick it up. It's running well! I'm so happy to have it back. It cost $404 but I'm not complaining.

Then I was feeling giddy with freedom to go wherever I wanted, so I called my sister Kathy and went over to her apt to pick up my nephew JoJo. Her car is in the shop too and she probably won't get it back till Tuesday. There must be something in the gas up here. (Yes Dad - I gave her $50)

JoJo and I went to see Madagascar II, Back to Africa. It was fun. JoJo was laughing out loud. After the movie we went to Blaines Art store to spend the gift certificate Tim had gotten me for Christmas. I splurged and bought nice paper ($50 for 20 sheets) and nice brushes which were all 50% off. AND a new set of 18 watercolor paints in pans. In the past I have bought cheap brushes, paper and paints. I wanted to get the good stuff. I would have felt guilty for buying all that nice stuff except I had to. It was a gift afterall!

I ended up keeping JoJo for the night. He's been bored since school was closed for the past 3 days due to icy streets. He's going to go to church with us in the morning and then I'll take him home after lunch.

It is really fun to get new supplies! Did it make you want to paint right away?

I did want to but then I had my nephew here and I can't imagine anything more unfun then having a kid interrupting me while I'm trying to paint.
